Dope BodySince 2008, Dope Body has been blasting the ears of Baltimore and Washington, D.C. residents with their furious and awesome noise rock. It’s chaotic, intense, abrasive, and just a riot. And just barely a year since they released the cathartic Lifer, the quartet are returning with another album, Kunk. The lead single from the album is the madly brilliant “Old Grey”. It’s something that Dan Boeckner might write if he teamed up with Lightning Bolt (actually, Boeckner did write some blazing tracks with Wolf Parade). The song will have you gyrating in your chair or if you’re standing up with the raucous and scuzzy guitars, the throbbing bass, and the stellar drum work. When it’s all finished, you might find yourself yelling, “F*** yeah!”

Kunk drops on August 28th via Drag City Records. They’ll be touring Europe in September to support the album, playing a handful of dates with Future Islands (those shows should be awesome). Tour Dates are below.

Dope Body are David Jacober, John Jones, Andrew Laumann, and Zachary Utz.

“Old Grey” rocks the June 12th edition of The Weekend Showcase, a weekly playlist featuring new music from around the world.
